This place was a pretty neat place to visit, but too many things were under construction I feel like. Maybe I'll try again in a few months once the repairs are done.

This place is good for young kids ( 8 years old). The exhibitions are a little old and need some renovation.

I have many fond memories here of trips to the science museum with school, friends and family. This is a great museum and a fun time for anyone with kids, as well as couples looking for a cute date!

We had a great time! It seems to be aimed at children in elementary school and preschool. I would imagine that it would not be much fun for a child in middle school or older. The staff does a great job keeping the areas clean. Every ten minutes someone came into the play grocery store area to organize and put... More

There are lots of stuff here for the kids to do for a learning experience. But there are things here for adults to do as well. Our favorite is the IMAX theater, where there's always an interesting film showing. A must stop whether you have kids with you or not.

I think her favorites were the Water Table Room, the Shopping Cart Room, and the Climbing Cage. Because the toll booth for parking is unmanned, it took us 15-20 minutes to park after we got to the...

My daughters are older teens, so the activities weren't really geared toward our age group, but it was still fun. There are better museums like this that represent all ages better, but there were still a lot of cool things, like an extensive collection of taxidermy and the National Parks IMAX movie had incredible visuals.

I went there on a recent trip to Louisville. The focus of 90% of the exhibits is elementary aged children. Everything looked outstanding, and almost all of the exhibits were functioning.

Great place to take younger kids. The staff are awesome and more than willing to teach about science with hands on activities. There are three levels and they get more advanced as you go up. Our kids are 2 yrs - 7 yrs and they had a blast!!! You can bring your own drinks, snacks, and pack lunches to save... More
